Yeah, unfortunately it is a difficult task. But FA50 macro could also be another case. might be even more usable.


Yes, it's not that bad considering that I paid 5 EUR (+11 EUR transport) for this TC... It arrived yesterday and here's a set shot using this combo: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/177-macro-photography/277773-macro-flower...ml#post3234217

For some time I had the idea of adding a 2X TC to my DFA100WR lens to have a 2:1 macro!
but then that Chinese company announced its 60mm 2:1 macro lens, some time ago!
Then I pulled the trigger and bought a 2X TC with KA mount! a Kiron 2X TC.
I chose this as I was tight in budget and thought that since I'm going to use it with flash, it will have quite satisfactory quality, despite it being poooor in long distances on long lenses. (Bought it for $21 + $16 for shipment as a new TC with box and other stuff)
And it turned out as I expected! I've shot quite a lot photos with DA35ltd on top of it, and am very happy about the results so far. I've been using it with DA35ltd as it is my single lens for April, and it's very good with it, so didn't bother trying the DFA100 yet.

So now I have a DA35 f/2.8 1:1 macro lens which on demand could turn into a 70mm f/5.6 2:1 macro with infinity focus.

Enough talking, let's see some photos.
















PS: Just wanted to share the method and experience, with anyone having a DA35ltd and wanting more.
awesome shots!
